International Vineyard "twinning" project
We are progressing an idea to have an informal connection with a traditional vineyard in each of the wine growing areas of the world - This has come out of having had visits and wine tastings from a number of tradtional wine makers from around the world over the last few years in our Topsham Cellar - the idea being our "friends of Pebblebed/club Vino" members will get a warm welcome when visiting abroad and vice versa! Perhaps exchanging wines and having tastings of wines with a "story"!
We hope to explore this further over the next few months.
